I DID IT!!!!!

Thank You!!!!! To everyone Who helped in any way.
I finally solved my EMG-ZW problem.
I now have them all (81, OEM single, 85) wired!
I conqured the (temporary) ACTIVE, PROGRESSIVE, ACTIVE (fix)

To everyone that kept reminding me it wouldnt sound right, I know, but I havent purchased the SA as of yet, (bills to pay ya know) and I am too stubborn to let a little puzzle (but very big headache lol) get the better of me! (also I dont want to buy a 3-way switch just for a few weeks worth of use.) I just couldnt make myself take the easy road for the start of the project. Besides, now when I do get the SA I only have to remove and reconnect a couple wires instead of the whole switch.

I tested it and the EMG's are AWESOME!! The OEM is Muddier, but I am not planning on using it until it is replaced anyhow (If I want clean chanel acoustic like sound, I always have my A/E series).

But as with everything in life this too came with its down side. I was adjusting the action and putting it all back in order and one of the 12 year bolts thatholds the trem on snapped right at the pivot point> SNAP BOWAWAWAWAWA! Swear it was the freakest thing I ever heard, Kinda cool though, I may try to market it on an effect board or something (I guess theres always a silver lining somewhere. lol)

Does anyone know where I can get just this bolt?
I havent started looking yet, Just thought I'd put out some feelers.

The stud? that the bridge pivots on? you can get it at www.ibanezrules.com go to parts... what year is yours? congrats on making that work. i would have just disconnected the single coil. the studs are like 10-15 dollars depending on the year you have.
